Ming Fay's exhibition "Canutopia" opens this Saturday, May 12th 2012 at Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey.
Over the course of six weeks, Chinese-born artist Ming Fay has transformed the brand-new EAST GALLERY
for its first-ever installation, by creating a site-specific botanical
utopia unlike anything visitors to the park have every seen in GFS
galleries. Canutopia is Fay's vision for a perfect future in
which mankind is harmoniously enfolded into the realm of nature,
represented by an immense floating forest canopy, lush and teeming with
fanciful forms of flora a fauna. Bowers of oversized fruits and seeds,
draped and arrayed throughout the East Gallery will be populated with
colorful, animated forms and shapes, existing easily alongside tiny
cavorting humans, horses, and other creatures.
